New concert announced, this time in Stockholm! :)

After Symphonic Shades, I didn't think it would happen so fast again that my music would be performed by a large orchestra, but here we are: The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra will perform a new concert called "Sinfonia Drammatica" in Stockholm, Sweden on August 4th. The concert will combine performances from Symphonic Shades with music from "drammatica -The Very Best of Yoko Shimomura-". I feel very honored, because I am a big fan of Shimomura's work myself.

Here are links to the official announcement (in Swedish) and the news on the Symphonic Shades website (in German).

There is also an exclusive interview on the well known "Square Enix Music Online" website with conductor Arnie Roth, who also conducted the Symphonic Shades concerts.

Interview in the German GEE magazine...

The current issue (44) of the German GEE magazine has an interview about my work and personal happenings. The mag looks and feels very nice, similar to the British Edge... here's a very rough and (sometimes amusing) machine translation via Yahoo's Babelfish.

New website is now online! :)

Finally... I just finished work on the new website and it is now online. Right now the focus is on the professional aspect of my work. The old site may be available as an archive version at a later date. For personal news I will keep posting here much more frequently - that should make it much easier to keep my friends and fans up to date! Enjoy the new site... :)

Thanks for all the Happy Birthdays!

I got a lot of emails and posts from friends and fans wishing me a Happy Birthday... thanks everyone, feels great. :) I'm really looking forward to a happy new year in my life and great things to come (I am still working hard to get my new website off the ground, but a few details remain to get sorted until it can go online).
